Associate Degree in BusinessCareer
Some courses within the associate degree use embedded work-integrated learning, particularly the course Design for Business, which involves project-based work, allowing you to use the knowledge you have gained about lean process methods to create or optimise a business practice. Visual Management for Business, studied at the end of your first year, involves a site visit to view innovation and change processes directly.
In your final year, you may choose to enrol in the Business Internship elective (12 credit points) which involves taking up a position in industry for one or two days per week for one semester. These positions are normally unpaid and are designed to develop your soft skills and increase your overall employability upon graduation. The placement must be self-sourced.

The Board creates a strategic bridge between the latest in technology and design thinking and business.
